My husband and I will be travelling to the Cape in mid February 2015 and on our way back will travel on the N6 from East London to Bloemfontein. We don't want to travel more than 400 - 500kms per day. Can anyone recommend a one night stop over camping site on the N6 between Rouxville and Winburg? It can be rustic and basic, but must have power and be clean. I have seen Aldam near Winburg, however the distance from East London is approximately 700 kms. Alternatively we are looking at inexpensive s/c facilities where our caravan and car can be safely parked at night.

Aldam is a bit further but it has all that you are looking for. Maybe depart a bit earlier?

Winburg is quite a distance past Bloemfontein if you come from Rouxville. Why not stop at one of the resorts around Bloemfontein? From Bloemfontein 500 km should easily get you anywhere in Gauteng on a very good road. There are quite a few threads about resorts around Bloemfontein. Just use the search function.

Marilyn, 25 km north of Bloem is Riviera, 500 metres off the N1. Good security and pleasant people to deal with. Just remember to fill up in Bloem.

Thank you everyone. Willem, I will have a look at Riviera. Aldam has been my choice so far. Unfortunately we cannot drive for more than 400 - 500 kms per day as I have a back problem. Has anyone been to the Aliwal Spa recently?

I drove past Aliwal Spa a couple of years ago and was shocked. I grew up in Barkley East and that was a prime spot even up to the eighties.
Don't know if it still exist?

I believe it is terrible. Thank you to everyone who so kindly responded. I have made an arrangement with Johann Greeff of The Purple House and will give feedback when we are back from our holiday.
